Burgers seared over an open flame, then doused in house-made pepper sauce. Po boys constructed from white hoagies and neatly sliced turkey and ham. These handheld meals characterize the offerings at Uncle Bo's Hamburgers & Deli, where both cold and hot sandwiches stack all-natural ingredients between chewy bread.
A full one-third pound of meat beefs up each grilled burger, served with fries and available with toppings such as bacon, blue cheese, and chili. Deli sandwiches range from hearty reubens on rye to lighter turkey wraps with sprouts and tomatoes, as well as offerings that set sail on wheat bread or tucked inside of croissants. House-made soups warm bellies to prevent locals from walking around with hot potatoes in their sweatshirts' front pockets, although the eatery also slings spuds loaded with bacon, cheeses, and broccoli.
Fort Worth Lighting is a commodious, fully appointed showroom brimming with indoor and outdoor lighting features and adornment for under-illuminated abodes. Tear new light holes into the fabric of the universe with ceiling lights, or trade in faded paper-doll garlands for new embellishments such as mirrors, clocks, and candle holders. An antique brass mini chandelier ($68.20) or chrome desk lamp ($55) dispel dreary indoor clouds, or commence home festoonification with an Orleans blackened gold and silver mirror ($63.80).
The family that owns and runs Me and My House consignment shop lines the shelves with an ample array of home furnishings, from small trinkets up to large furniture pieces. While gently used upscale furniture is the star of the showroom, shoppers will also find plenty of baubles and trinkets with which to festoon both body and home. These items include jewelry and clothing for adults, toys and sporting goods for children and teenagers, and dishes and hardware for around the home.
It’s a good thing James Bryant’s parents didn’t pay him more allowance. At 10, he found his $10 weekly payday unacceptable, so he started knocking on neighbors’ doors to see if they’d like him to mow their lawns. The business grew as he did, and, by the time he finished high school, he felt certain that landscaping was his true passion. Since officially founding Bryant Lawn and Sprinkler in 1995, James has continued to find fulfillment in creating natural works of art out of previously lackluster yards and gardens. He and his team do this by planting flowers, mulching gardens and installing eco-conscious sprinkler systems. They also design yard lighting so that, at night, freshly pruned shrubs stand out and moths can use shadow puppets to tell their brief life stories.
Cofounded by dancing legend Fred Astaire to train new generations of rug cutters with his signature easy grace, Fred Astaire Dance Studio uses a unique curriculum to create comfort on the dance floor. Instructors start with steps and rhythms common to most social dances, steadily building toward more specialized combinations of moves for a variety of rhythm-dance styles such as cha-cha and samba and smooth-dance styles such as the foxtrot and waltz. Once they've learned to follow, lead, or just pare down unnecessary finger-snaps, students can take to the purple-walled dance floor to practice their steps and try on new partners at social parties.
